a smidgen late in posting these past few weeks.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. I have about 12 articles in my Draft folder.
But those posts are either half-finished, or two-thirds unfinished, or in one post, consist only of a title!
Why the delay?
My daughter is graduating from high school. And, since we are homeschoolers, that means we – along with 28 other families – are hosting the graduation ceremony and reception.
We’re expecting 800-1000 people – which translates into a lot of cake and punch – as we try to wrap up classwork, finals at college campus (she’s taking dual credit and has earned a 4.0 for her first 17 college hours – Whoop!) and we’re trying to finish a bathroom remodel before out-of-town guests arrive. To add to all that craziness, I’m on a scoring project that requires a lot of online work time.
Let’s say, I’m a little . . . beat.
But, please don’t read that as a complaint. I’m excited about this important transition for my daughter and our family. And I’m happy for all the activity and planning that needs to go on in order to manage make this ceremony happen. (I especially enjoy all the parties and party food! Yum!)
Planning a graduation is like planning a wedding. The only difference is that instead of one bride’s family, you have about 29.
It might even challenge a Royal Wedding Planner.
Hope to catch up with everyone soon!
